Cesar Hawthorne Binag and the rest of the officials of Table Tennis Association of the Philippines (TATAP) are very optimistic regarding the chances of their seven players in the 25th LaosSoutheast Asian Games (SEAG), which starts next week. Binag, the president of TATAP, and Vice-president Jose Ortalla Jr. also thanked the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) for providing their players allowances, uniforms, and allowing them to join the biennial meet.
"This is my first SEA games and I'm very thankful to the POC for giving us a chance to join the SEA games," said Binag, a program management office (PMO) chief of staff of the Philippine National Police (PNP). "I believe our chances are big."
Ortalla Jr., also the team manager of the table tennis squad bound to Laos, is expecting that Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam are the teams to reckon with in Laos, but he believes the country's chosen paddlers have the skills to pull-off an upset.

Cesar Hawthorne Binag was named as deputy police commissioner in the UNMIL. He will join the other members of the PNP and the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) deployed as peace keepers in accordance with UN Resolution 1509 that established the UNMIL. In his pre-departure call, Binag was reminded by PNP Director General Alan Purisima to show the international community an image of highly capable, effective and credible police officer worthy of emulation and respect.
As deputy commissioner of the UN Police in Liberia, Binag will lead various programs on capability building, institutional development and human resource management; and will be responsible for the operational and managerial oversight of the UN police components activities related to the Mission mandate implementation. A member of the Philippine Military Academy Hinirang Class of 1987, Binag is a veteran UN peace keeper having served in the Philippine Contigent to the UN Transitory Administration in Cambodia from 1993 to 1994, an assignment which earned him a UN Peace Medal. Prior to his appointment as deputy commissioner for UNMIL, Binag served as the senior executive assistant to former PNP chief Nicanor Bartolome from 2011 to 2012.
Binag has management, administrative and operational experiences further enriched by his Masters in Public Policy and Management and Masters in Public Administration degrees he obtained from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government in 2011. He also holds a Masters in Development Management degree from the Asian Institute of Management that he completed in 1999. Binag is only the second PNP officer given the recognition of performing a management level post in any UN police assignment; the first being retired police director Rodolfo Tor who served as UN police commissioner in East Timor from 2007 to 2009.

That was a decade ago, and Cesar Binag was then a young police captain fresh from a stint with the elite Special Action Force (SAF) that battled coup plotters and insurgents. To Binag, who was trained in the Philipppine Military Academy (PMA), his new assignment was boring. Or at least that's how it seemed at first.
One day a friend invited him for dinner. Binag quickly accepted, perhaps thinking it was going to be a nice break from the drudgery of his job. Instead, his friend served up a temptation, a situation Binag would find himself in repeatedly.
When his friend turned up, he had in tow a foreign businessman with an eye on a P250-million contract the department was bidding out. The businessman's proposition was simple: Binag would provide a copy of a document detailing the contract's specifications, thereby giving the foreigner an edge in the bidding war. In exchange, Binag would get 1.5 percent of the contract budget, or P3.75 million. Half that amount was his for the taking right there and then, if he accepted.
"Politely I said to them, 'I cannot do that,'" recounts Binag, now in his late 30s.
Binag isn't exactly a rebel or a maverick but it seems the country's armed services do have their share of officers who know how to just say no. For a time, this had been hard for the public even to imagine, especially after the media exposé on Gen.
Cesar Binag has turned down bribes and believes that it is possible to make the police a more accountable institution.
Binag, now a superintendent and chief of the PNP's resource reform unit, is a born-again Christian. When he talks about "conversion," though, he means not the welcoming of a newcomer to his faith, but the practice of transferring or realigning funds intended for other purposes that in the process often end up in the pockets of corrupt officers.
But both Azul and Binag seem to have found a comfortable balance.
It helps that officers like Azul and Binag took up management studies in institutions such as the University of the Philippines, the Asian Institute of Management, or even schools overseas, where they were exposed to better and more effective ways of doing things.
Binag, who has run the range of police duties from being police station commander to heading the PNP's Traffic Management Group, likewise talks about having ordered time-and-motion studies to identify bottlenecks in the PNP units where he has been posted. He says leadership trainings are passing on effective management styles to potential young leaders in PNP offices where reforms are most needed.
Because reforms are grounded on the hope and the desire that things will change, Binag says, the first step is to restore hope.
"Hope is not a method," he says.
Binag, too, doesn't think a revolt is in the offing. But that's because he earned his spurs defending the government. After all, in the SAF, which he had joined right after graduating from the PMA in 1987, he and his co-recruits were almost immediately fighting off coups that rocked the Aquino administration during its early years.
